KINDERFUN 4/17/17 - 4/21/17

Weekly Newsletter

Snapshot of the Week:
     This week we will be hard at work reviewing our sight words. We will be using tactile ways of spelling them and hunting for them in leveled readers during reading group. Math will continue to focus on addition within 10 and subtraction within 5, and also fluently counting within 100. We will be switching our focus unit to "Construction" as we will have a front row seat to all that will be going on outside! We will also begin incorporating our spring unit into our learning this week.
     Because of the small response in book club orders, I will be extending the due date to this Friday, April 21. There are some great resources and book collections to prepare your child for first grade. An appropriate level for this point in the school year and looking ahead into first grade would be a DRA-A-1 or DRA-A-2. You can send your order into school or place an online order using the class code: P3BVF. Thank you for considering ordering! :)
